Who is Claudia Conway? Meet Kellyanne Conway’s outspoken daughter

Claudia Conway’s mom, Kellyanne, is a counselor to President Trump and his former campaign manager. Her father is a big shot lawyer who once represented Paula Jones.

But its the 15-year-old who’s recently been making headlines — by posting anti-Trump TikTok videos and sharing her uber-liberal views, all while publicly battling her parents over control of her social media accounts.

The tug-of-war came to a head Monday, when Claudia announced that her mom and dad, conservative Trump critic George Conway, had banned her from social media.

So who is Claudia Conway?

She has famous conservative parents

Before joining the Trump team, Claudia’s mom Kellyanne was a political consultant for top Republicans and a strategist for the GOP.

Her dad George, meanwhile, is a prominent corporate attorney who represented Jones in her lawsuit against Bill Clinton. He’s the founder of the anti-Trump conservative super political action committee (PAC) The Lincoln Project.

The rest of Claudia’s family leans right, too. She told Insider last month that she comes from a “huge conservative Italian family” and recalled getting into an argument with an aunt over her choice to wear a “women for Trump” hat.

“Everyone in my family are (sic) Trump supporters except for my Dad and I,” she told the outlet.

“I grew up in a very very conservative family, so I was only exposed to those views for a very long time,” she added.

She lives Washington D.C. (but doesn’t want to)

Claudia was raised in Alpine, New Jersey, along with her twin brother George IV and two younger sisters Charlotte and Vanessa.

In 2016, the Conways relocated to the nation’s capital — though Claudia, then a sixth grader, wasn’t so happy about the move. She started a Change.org petition in an attempt to convince her parents to stay put in the Garden State.

The Post reported at the time that Kellyanne was getting stonewalled when trying to get her kids placed into D.C. private schools.

Once she graduates, Claudia says she wants to work in social justice advocacy.

“I think that’s what I want to do when I’m older, like social justice activism,” she told Insider. “I know my mom always told me: if you believe it, go stand for it.”

Here’s what she posts on TikTok

The teen has recently amassed more than 215,000 followers on TikTok, where she goes by @shortfakeblonde. Her initial posts weren’t political, but in April, she began uploading videos that were critical of her mom’s boss.

“Why do people hate on Trump supporters, like can’t we just respect everyone’s opinions? SIKE nah block me pls and then educate yourself,” she wrote in one video.

In another clip, she wrote: “hi so if you’re leftist, acab, anti-trump, blm, etc. please interact w this because most of my comments are threats from angry trump supporters.”

She captioned another TikTok with “i love trump… but replace ‘love’ with ‘think that we should extinguish.’”

She’s also posted in support of Black Lives Matter, highlighting the case of Breonna Taylor.

AOC is one of her idols

The self-described teen activist told USA Today last month that far lefty New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg are two of her idols.

Claudia also said she decided to advance progressive causes on her social media channels after educating herself on issues like same-sex marriage and abortion.

“Growing up in a family where you’re really only exposed to one side and your mom is a public figure working for some of the biggest Republican politicians in the nation, you know, 12-year-old me was wondering, ‘Why? Why is my mom doing this?’

“‘What does she believe in? Why does she believe this and why does she fight for this so much?’ And so I started reading,” Claudia said.

She’s an expert at trolling

Claudia recently livestreamed a confrontation with her mother on TikTok, in which Kellyanne can be seen swiping the teen’s phone out of her hands.

And after her dad wrote on Twitter Friday that he and his wife no longer consented to journalists speaking to Claudia, she responded she was “sorry [his] marriage failed.”

Despite the public quip about her parent’s marriage, she told USA Today that she doesn’t think their dynamic is “anyone else’s business, other than my family and mine, to be honest.”

“It’s kind of frustrating that I’ve kind of grown up around that,” she said.

Her mom is her best friend

They may not always see eye to eye, but Claudia has described her mother as her “best friend.”

“My mom is my best friend but we do fight all the time over politics, and I’m always shut down by my entire family,” she told Insider.

The mother-daughter duo attended Trump’s inaugural ball in D.C., with Kellyanne tweeting a photo of them at the time, looking lovingly at each other in evening gowns.

Claudia has said that growing up as Kellyanne Conway’s daughter, “it’s really really hard to disassociate yourself with that image because people look at me and are like ‘oh, that’s Kellyanne Conway’s daughter,’ she must love Trump.”

“I really don’t,” she told Insider, adding that her opinions and those of her mother “could not be more opposite.”

But, she, added: “I respect everyone’s views.”
